Man, oh man. The predictions and the moaning and groaning are building to a fever pitch on the Internet. George Ure of Urban Survival fame is saying that today is gonna be a bad day on Wall Street. He is predicting a bummer. And then he gets into the credit card business and starts talking about what all the Internet businesses will do if Americans don't have credit cards. What about Amazon and E-Bay and others? They could get SOME payment from Pay Pal and that would be about it. Otherwise we would have to go to the old pay-by-check method and wait for the check to clear the bank and then your stuff would get mailed. This is not going to make the instant gratification folks very happy. This is not going to make a LOT of folks happy. In fact, I will go so far as to predict that it will make a ton of folks UNHAPPY.
What is really pertinent to this post is the stuff preppers are ordering from the Internet. Get it while you can folks! After the credit cards fold their tents and walk away, Cash Will Be King. You have the money, you get the goods. If you don't have the money then you go home and assemble your money and come back. Credit will be out the door and in the gutter, bloody and unconscious.
I keep coming back to my friend Charles and others who keep saying "Don't be fooled!" These charlatans will say anything that pops into their heads to get you to go along with their failed programs. DO NOT BE FOOLED. Remember all the crap about our economy being fundamentally sound? Well, it ain't. And that was BEFORE we injected 4 trillion dollars into our system to "keep our liquidity going." Four trillion extra dollars printed up and stuck out there into the hands of the bankers. Just the folks that needed it! Paulson works for Goldman Sachs and Ben Bernanke works for the Federal Reserve Bank, which is owned by foreigners who mostly live in Europe. Goldman Sachs is in deep danger of going belly up. The Federal Reserve is maintaining the wealth of it's owners, which is what a bank is supposed to do. It is not there to make sure you are okay and safe. No, no, no. It is protecting the wealthy bastards who print the money to run this country. Never forget that someone, somewhere, can pick up a phone and give Bernanke orders and that person is not an American. Does this make you feel comfortable? It damn sure does not make ME feel comfortable. You can't be sure that the person making the call to Bernanke has the best interest of us American peons at heart. You might think just the opposite!
Yet we must go on, just like the rich bankers do and the wealthy folks in Europe do. We must live this lifestyle that has evolved, called Survivalism. It can be tough but it is what has to be done. We cannot give in and roll over for these people, these rip-off bastards. We must go on prepping and intending to make it. Winning your own mind is half the battle. Once you are convinced of the good of it then you are on your way to staying alive.
