I am going to say this because no one else seems willing to. These are the facts. This is what is happening as we speak. The time to prepare for it in a meaningful way is past.
The world cannot borrow it's way out of debt. The money that should have been spent during better economic times was not, and there is no more. The world has entered a monetary depression which will result in total chaos, war, misery and horror. There is no longer a way out.
The stock market is now UP on the HOPE that someone, somewhere can fix the mess in Europe. They HOPE that because they are anxious to believe that the fools which created all these problems have a magic bullet. They don't.
Equity markets have been spinning up and down for weeks. Precious metal markets are erratic. Last Friday, September 23, 2011, the markets came within a hair's breadth of going to the bottom and staying there. They didn't because someone cooked the books in after hours trading. There ARE no 'fundamentals' anymore. Historical trends are meaningless. The world has never been in this place before and it cannot save itself.
The NEXT time the markets go, and it could easily be this week – but it will certainly be this year – they will not rebound. Gold and silver will not go up. They will go to levels last seen about eleven years ago. Everyone who has money in the market will lose it.
Sovereign governments no longer control countries. Bankers control countries. They also own the stock exchanges and can manipulate them by high-speed computerized trading. Politicians and bankers are not your friends. They do not care about you. That's why you have no home or job. But it gets worse. They don't intend to feed you homeless layabouts much longer, either.
NO fiscal policy that is, or ever had been, or ever will be enacted by any government is for the benefit of the citizens. Citizens are disposable. You are disposable. Look around. Have the HUNDREDS of trillions of dollars that have been spent made your life easier? No. Your life is becoming worse by the day. Your future, and that of your children, which seemed assured thirty years ago now seem hopeless. You worry EVERY DAY now about things which should not have to worry you.
Fukushima is not on the road to recovery. It is a boiling cauldron of fissioning nuclear waste that will kill 100 million people over hundreds of years. It cannot be fixed. Ever. It cannot be contained. It is poisoning the ocean, the air, and life on earth. And there are hundreds more plants just like that which will never be turned off because people want energy and there is a profit in supplying it to them.
Of the people, By the people, For the people.
Police departments are being militarized. That is just wrong. Police officers live in your neighborhood and you ought to feel good about them instead of what is happening now – people feel like they live in an occupied country – and they have every right to feel that way. The police do not exist to control the population. They exist to protect and serve the citizens. When they adopt the mindset of military 'operators', they have exceeded their charter. That has to stop. A LOT more citizens than everyone realizes are highly trained combat veterans. They respect the police, but they expect to be afforded the rights and benefits of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.
SWAT teams who kick down doors without warrants and kill people who are not suspected of a crime are out of control. The TSA is out of control. The DEA is out of control. They are out of control because there is no firm connection between their leadership and the Constitution. It is somehow assumed that police officers and their leadership is no longer accountable; that they are no longer governed by the same laws as everyone else. That concept has pushed this country well down the road toward armed insurrection.
It is not the job of the police to find reasons to arrest you. It is their job to find reasons to protect you.
The Obama Administration
Responsible for all of this? No. But he IS responsible for not at least TRYING to fix it. He did not keep even one of his campaign promises. He didn't cause this, but he made it a lot worse and he still doesn't understand it. He has got to go. Even if we have to elect some nutcase – no longer matters. WE HAVE TO SOMETHING ELSE!
No offense Mr Cain, but there are not going to be any more black presidents for a long time. THAT is Obama's legacy. THAT is what black America will remember him for. And that's very sad.
