It's not just USA, but every country should consider spending less and passing down a financially sound government to our next generation!

"Where are we now" I say we are screwed that is where.

I wish everyone and theirs the best. Our times are a changin. Maybe this is what Obama ment on the campaign trail. {side note to Harbin: notice the "E" before the "I" in theirs? Yes this is the proper spelling. Except after "C" does not always apply}

Although I may not agree with all of what Brother Gregory says I do find his videos very interesting. Check some out. He touches wide range of issues of course.

Matthew 7:6

"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.


I do not know why scripture and religous thing are popping in my head as I read the posts today. I honestly do not have one religion. In my life time so far, I have found that even though there are different religions they seem very much alike to me. Any way I find it a little odd that I am looking up verses.

So we are now at a point were a debt deal seems to have been worked out and it occurred to me that what is being ushered in is the beginning of austerity measures. The whole "debt crisis" / "credit rating" horror movie we have been watching on the news was nothing but a misdirection ploy to distract us from the fact that austerity measures have arrived in the US.

Edit:They were actually able to get people to demand that it happens, anything to avoid the scary movie being played out on the news.
If it looks like a duck, acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck it is probably just a tool of the conspiracy.

The two worst things that can happen right now --- Monday, August 1st.

The US defaults and the banks devalue the US dollar to the point of absurdity.

Not one penny of US currency will be worth bupkus. - meaning, $2000 US won't buy a loaf of bread. ALL governmental funds will be suspended --- i.e., military paychecks, government salaries, unemployment compensation, government contracts will go unfilled, grant funding, welfare, food stamps, social security, medicare ------ ALL BYE BYE.

The blowback from this will be grocery store owners will be laying guns on the counter.

Remember your 401k? GONE.

Remember your pension? GONE

We should know by Wednesday morning whether it is good or bad.

Stay tuned mi amigos, 48 hours should really tell the tale.

Default means changes in the way you live, but from the bottom you can only move in one direction, and that is up. Default also means something else that most Americans don't even understand, and that's freedom, not being a slave to the banks anymore. Look at Argentina, their economy is growing now why because they already went through this shit. They got creative and the entire country didn't kill each other. Times were tough yes, but they learned to adapt, and now they are out from under the banks chokehold. Here is a good documentary about lessons learned in the argantine default and how they could apply in America. Granted this video was made in response to the recession, not a default. I personally believe the American system is going to collapse because it cannot sustain itself, so why keep making us suffer though the fear of it happening any day now, and just let it happen already. At least then we can start over and not let the same mistakes be made again, like trusting the banks.

Edit: it's the second half of the video that I think is relevant it about how the argantinians learned to adapt after their collapse and are now in the process of rebuilding their country.

True Santa, though Argentina has only recently "evolved" from the bottom of 3rd world status, so technically that is apples and oranges.

If the US economy falls through "any day now", we are talking millions of people who have rather blindly enjoyed their excesses and without the capital to continue it are going to have a rather tough time finding food, etc.

This could very well be the "level playing field" but from a more alarming viewpoint.

Puppet of the Wall Street, Obama used same tactic as Bush. Fear!
So they agree to borrow more money and promise to reduce debt in next 10 years....
Guess what guys? Your debt filled country is keeping AAA rating. How can a country running out of funds, borrowing more to survive possibly keep AAA rating?
Wake the fuck up, sheeple!
Revolt against ur system!
